Baked Shrimp Scampi #SundaySupper

Let me get a count of hands. How many of you learned to cook from watching food TV? Come on, it’s okay, you can admit your love for it.  There is no shame. 

For you see, when I still had cable if the TV was on and I was home alone you were more than likely to catch me watching a cooking show.  PBS, Food Network, Bravo, Create.  You name it, I watched something from there.  I tell you, that’s the one thing that streaming television hasn’t caught up with yet, cooking shows!  Get with the program!

Baked Shrimp Scampi - The Girl In The Little Red Kitchen

Anyhoo, the reason for my little tangent above is because #SundaySupper is cooking recipes from our favorite celebrity chef this week!  Woo! Fun times!  I know I pretty much do my own thing here, but you should see my cookbook collection.   It’s large, and that reminds me, I have more to add to my Amazon wishlist.  I do have a birthday coming up and Chanukah and Christmas!

Baked Shrimp Scampi - The Girl In The Little Red Kitchen

The big question though, who do I pick?  I’ve covered Julia pretty extensively, I could do a Alton Brown recipe, or maybe actually cook from Michael Psilakis’ book instead of looking at it (seriously How to Roast a Lamb is a beautiful book), in the end I went with a recipe I’ve made many times and from someone who just brings joy Ina Garten – The Barefoot Contessa!

I love her baked shrimp scampi, it’s so easy, the sauce is delicious and perfect spooned over some pasta or rice and the shrimp ends up cooked perfect each time! I’ve made some modifications from her original recipe but you can see hers here

Baked Shrimp Scampi #SundaySupper

I scaled this recipe down to feed to hungry people, but it would also make a great appetizer for 4.

Save Recipe


  • 1 pound extra large shrimp, peeled, deveined and butterflied
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and black pepper
  • pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup shallots, finely minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, thyme and sage (about a sprig or two of each) finely chopped
  • zest and juice from 1 lemon
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 2/3 cup panko breadcrumbs


  1. Pre-heat your oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. In an oval gratin bowl, starting on the outside line your shrimp so the tails are facing up and work your way around to the inside.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, wine, salt, and peppers. Pour over the prepared shrimp and set aside.
  4. In another small bowl, mash together the butter, shallots, herbs, lemon juice and zest, egg yolk and panko breadcrumbs.
  5. Spread the butter mixture evenly over the shrimp (it should cover everything) and bake for 10-12 minutes. If you'd like a crisper crust, bake under the broiler for an additional minute.
  6. Remove from the oven and serve immediately with angel hair pasta or rice pilaf, spooning the sauce over the pasta or rice.

    I certainly am not afraid to admit that I learned how to cook watching all those fabulous chefs when they pioneered shows on PBS back in the day! Some of my fondest memories are plopping in front of the tv on a Saturday afternoon watching a marathon of cooking shows. I also LOVE all the shows available to us right now with the Food Network, Food Channel, PBS and network TV just recently. Ina is certainly one of my favorites! Your baked shrimp scampi is plated perfectly and looks amazing!!! Ina would be proud 🙂

    Ina is my favorite!! I was supposed to see her give a book talk last month but it got canceled because of Hurricane Sandy 🙁 I’m making her mexican chicken soup for dinner tonight too! And your shrimp scampi looks delicious! I haven’t tried this one yet, will have to add to the list 🙂

    I’ve spent countless hours watching cooking shows. It took me a long time to actually get into the kitchen but once I did, I’m a cooking fool. Isn’t it funny how we all learned our cooking tehniques from these shows. As for this scampi, as Ina would say, “who wouldn’t love that?’

    This is beautiful. This recipe is new to me but I looove Ina’s recipes, too.
    I learned to cook from TV as well. And I’ll say it proudly, it all started with Rachael Ray (circa 2003?).

    ps: don’t be creeped out but you were totally in my dream last night. we were definitely eating something, and then you told me that you’re dating this guy I used to know and then I was like “aren’t you married?”
    anyway… plz don’t think i’m a creeper LOL

  24. Megan

    Ina’s recipes are always a favorite. I have not tried this recipe out but it is bookmarked! Thank you for sharing (and your photos are beautiful!).

  25. Lyn @LovelyPantry

    Ina never fails! I’m keeping this recipe for all its awesomeness! Your photos are so lovely! I did about 2 years of watching cooking shows. So I can totally relate. When I got busy, I would just PVR and watch in my down time. Its the best mommy time ever 🙂
